Yes, all APIs which don't explicitly document other behavior require
canonical paths/dirents/urls/relpaths for their arguments.

I added a regression test on this problem in r1030279.

The easy fix: Just replacing svn_path_url_add_component2() with
svn_uri_join() doesn't fix this test (and breaks basic_tests.py 50), because
svn doesn't pass the urls properly escaped. So this requires a bit more
